What is Art Education Doing?
Simpson, Alan
Journal of Art and Design Education, v6 n3 p251-60 1987
This article examines the purposes of art education. It contends that the spontaneity, novelty, and self-expression characteristic of the child-art period leaves most people with little or no understanding of art. Concludes that the new "art appreciation" approach must be examined to ensure that it meets its goals. (Author/BSR)
